Eight million stitches to create the world!

At Chester Cathedral: eight million stitches expressing God's love for creation!

'Threads through Creation' is an extraordinary, uplifting art exhibition at Chester Cathedral, on show until 1 March 2022.

It's a great opportunity for Christians to enjoy, and also to take non-Christian friends to – and will trigger some interesting conversations!

'Threads through Creation' consists of twelve beautiful silk panels reimagining the story of Creation from the Bible. They're huge (2.7m high, up to 3.5m wide) and quite awe-inspiring.

It took artist Jacqui Parkinson three years, and eight million stitches! (Some of your members may remember her from a former life, when she was Jacqui Frost, married to the late Rev Rob Frost.)

Free admission.
